The Los Angeles Superior Court currently processes signed documents (orders, judgments, etc…) on CIVIL matters in one of two ways.
- Electronically: If the judge signs the order electronically, the court then returns the signed copy to the e-filing service provider. We then distribute that to the filer.
- In Paper: If the judge chooses to print and sign the order in paper, then the court is unable to return a signed copy to the e-filing service provider. They will then distribute the signed order outside the e-filing system themselves via US mail or email.
Unfortunately, there is no way for us to know how the court/judge chose to process the order.
